You Make it Possible...

Every day, the lives of hundreds of Northern Virginians are changed because of a tragic accident resulting in a brain injury or concussion. Many more are faced with life-altering decisions because a family member has suffered a stroke.Because of events such as these, the number of people needing services increases dramatically year after year.

Because of your generosity, Brain Injury Services supports and empowers survivors and their family members so that no one has to face their future in doubt or alone. Through innovative programs, educational resources, and peer support groups, we are here to help. But we are not able to do this work without YOU!

  • a single mom who suffered a stroke and faces raising her children alone;
